BAE Enquiry: Let's end the cover up

I am really pleased that Lib Dem MP's used their allocation of time in Parliament today to try to  persuade the Government to reverse their decision to end an enquiry into the Al Yamamah arms deal.

The abandonment of this investigation and the suppression of the report into Al Yamamah was unbelievably shabby.  It undermined Parliament, the rule of law and Britain’s reputation for implementing anti-bribery legislation."

It has also damaged our standing in the developing world where Gordon Brown and other ministers have been preaching good governance.

This decision has harmed honest British companies, whose position is being made untenable because of the special exemption from the law given to BAE Systems.
